Our weekend started early, as Thursday and Friday were inservice days at school. Alexi took the week off. Thursday Cal learned to ride his bike; yesterday he wanted the safety rails removed from his bed (bed is lumpy because he leaves his stuffed animals in bed when he makes it). (Tomorrow, shaving?)
It feels nothing like summer yet, but I'm enjoying our garden, and I'm amazed at how well it's doing this year. Working outside the past few weeks I've had conversations with neighbors I haven't talked to since trick-or-treating. Gardening is a worthwhile endeavor if for no other reason than the sense of community it provides. Discussions now about the growing; sharing the results as the summer progresses.
In my childhood school was out the Friday before Memorial Day. My boys have several more weeks of school and I prefer it that way. It's nice to be off when the weather's good and June is never that great around here. August, September are remarkable.
Hoping the sun will come out; if not, we'll still enjoy more gardening, and baking, and time together and with friends.
Wishing you a fun weekend! xo Lecia
